Thanks to all of you!

Some weeks ago I posted how scared I was about having a bone marrow biopsy and asked for support - you came in your tens to encourage me. This is to say thank you for your uplifting comments as my biopsy was done yesterday and I believe every one of your heartfelt words made a difference. How true the fear being worse than the actual! Only thing is, my hospital did not offer me a cup of tea afterwards so I went for an ice cream instead! To anyone facing one of these - it's really OK, truly is.

Hi Linds, so pleased to hear that everything went ok for you yesterday. Good for you having an ice cream, you deserved it. Maz x


I thought the gas and air they gave me was the best thing about it when I had one!! Hope you had a flake in the ice cream as well. Good luck with the results from it.


I had a aspiration a few weeks ago, the docs weren't pretifying the proceedure that needed doing. In actual fact I think my heams words were 'I'm not going to lie, it really isn't very nice' lol.....they did the proceedure about 3 hours later, not giving me time to think about things. That was the best was really, for me at least. I would have stressed far too much. As it was I had seen a YouTube video of what they would do, I think that helped me, I am one of those people that need to know whats going to happen.....Well done to you, because no it's not nice, I think back at it now and its not such a horrid memory at the time I was all alone and totally overwhelmed with what was going on.....

You enjoy your ice cream, it is more than well deserved.

All the best to you,



Oh Chelle, the aspiration does not sound a great experience. Glad you sound philosophical about these things and thanks for thinking of me yet again.


Hi linds, Glad you have had your bmb and it wasn't so bad as you thought it would be. Good luck with the results. England must be enjoying a bit of summer for you to have enjoyed an ice cream! Take care


Hi Linds,

Great it's over and done with. Sorry there was no cup of tea at your hospital - but I'll bet the ice cream was the best one ever. Take care and keep well.



Hi Linds

Ice cream is better than a cup of tea, as someone else said you deserved it and hope you had a load of sauce of a flake on it!! Kind regards

Hello Aime, thanks for your note. I get the results on Tuesday and like all of us am hoping for good news. How are you these days? Are you coping with the new job and the journey a little better because I remember reading you were very tired at times.
